Responsible tourism: China tour on a shoestring


Our Guidebook to the clients highlights out our awareness of the importance of protecting the environment, including the heads-up for travelers to respect the environment, protect the local customs, culture and historic relics whilst exploring China. We never try bringing down our cost for the tour by using anything unrecyclable. Our company also encourages staff to reduce the use of the fax machine, for example by using our email fax viewer, and to reuse printout paper. As we know, reducing use of paper means less chopping down of the forest. In this tour, customers will take bamboo rafting in the Li River instead of the big tourist boats, in hopes to lower down the gas pollution to the waters yet adding a special touch to the vacation. At the meantime, travelers can also understand how Chinese people are protecting our own country in history-wise, culture-wise and natural-environment-wise. We always keep small groups tours, as small group tour can reduces the impact of tourism on the environment, e.g. no noise pollution from loud hailers, and smaller vehicles mean less damage to roads.


We are proud to say that yearly we make great contribution to the local community by stimulating the economics, optimizing and leading the tourism, offering the local people numerous job opportunities. We always dedicated ourselves to charity by donating a sum of money to the local charity institutions to help the orphans every month. Interaction with local people is much encouraged because we think that is the best way for outsiders to understand the life, faith and values of common Chinese people. We only employ local guides to make you get the most out of your traveling, and pay a better salaries (including to tour guides and supplier agencies in other cities) than other Chinese operators. As in this tour, we hire local villagers to propel the bamboo rafts in the Li River, who would also be happy to share his life stories. Also, we strive to pass down excellent Chinese culture and traditional arts by encouraging our clients to try out, as we arrange a Kungfu Class with the local master in Yangshuo.
